I highly recommend you going through and reading all of http://linuxcommand.org/learning_the_shell.php

It will explain a lot of information you're currently missing and your questions are only going to get more difficult without that basic understanding.

Yes but that's what the question had asked. If you execute the following command...

Code:
pwd
You'll see which directory you're in.

I read this thread for a while continually wondering why you haven't tried things. Because the many obvious incorrect forms of the commands would have shown you that many of those were incorrect. So my question was to then be: Do you have a Linux system to try this on? Now I see that you do and have finally tried a command. Which makes sense because it is a "lab".

Try to do the forms of commands where you're guessing if they're correct and by trial and error you'll learn; and this is actually the whole point of doing the lab; and it will help you learn because you'll experiment and begin to think about things versus relying on a course guide or direct answers from others. And that's not an attack, it is my belief that people learn better if they apply their efforts to try to solve a problem; even if they don't succeed - when they either do succeed or if they have to be shown the solution, they sort of have an epiphany and realize one very small mistake they made, but they learn exponentially at that very moment and the lesson sticks.
